The Shadowy Apparition That Took Me By Surprise

29 November 2016 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

This incident took place a few years ago, I had no interest at all in the paranormal until this occurrence. I was home alone, as my parents were out for the evening, and I was in the living room of our house on my laptop. My laptop is set up so that my back is to the wall. From there, I have a clear view of our kitchen. I was browsing different websites. One of my dogs, Caspar, was curled up on the chair next to me. I heard some loud noises coming from upstairs, but ignored it, assuming that it was our other dog playing around up there. At one point, I thought I heard someone step down a few stairs and pause, but I continued to ignore it.

The Other Side Is Trying To Communicate With Me

25 November 2016 | Haunted houses, Phone Calls from the dead, Your Stories

It was around 11 PM and we were getting ready for bed. We turned off all the lights and turned off our cell phones. Just as we were drifting off to sleep my phone rang. I picked up my phone and noticed that the caller ID said “John.” I just thought my husband, John, was messing around. I turned and asked him why he was calling me. He just replied that he wasn’t. He picked up his phone and showed me that it was turned off. On a few occasions, I would leave my laptop on at night and let it rest in sleep mode. Both my husband and I sleep lightly so we would wake at the slightest sound, or crack of light. I remember waking up in the

Assaulted by a Ghost – A Living Hell

24 November 2016 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories

I’m female, married and fifty-one now, but when I was in my early thirties, single, and living alone, I lived at 5 Reabrook Road, Northfield, Birmingham, UK. The then Longbridge Car Plant was still there, built 1905 and demolished in 2005; it was literally just a two minute walk from my flat. Number 5, as several of the houses on that road and other roads were, I think, was originally built for the Plant workers and then converted to bedsit flats. I was on the ground floor and there was a woman living above me. My living room and bedroom were one room with the bathroom and kitchen separate. I had twenty-six pet mice and was up at 4 am six days a week for work at 5am. From the

The Day The Devil Came to Visit

08 November 2016 | Haunted houses

Loftus Hall in Wexford, Ireland is considered to be Ireland’s most haunted house. More a mansion than a house, Loftus Hall was built by the Redmond family during the Black Death of 1350.

His youngest daughter, Anne, whose painting now hangs in the Hall, was particularly interest in the design and building of the house.

Halloween Haunts #3: The Bodies Rest in a Lake of Death – The Tragedy of Fairytale

31 October 2016 | G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Haunted houses, Haunted locations

Back in the 16th century, the Pangerl family settled in the beautiful and mountainous Šumava region of Bohemia to farm, eventually building three farm buildings. Little did they know how their decision would eventually result in tragedy. A couple of hundred years later, an old and ugly woman built a shack on the edge of the village of Bradna and moved in. She was a fearsome creature, and it is said that she had teeth like millstones and was so ugly that the local folk avoided meeting her. Slowly, the inevitable rumors began. Strange chanting sounds were often heard by passersby and foul-smelling potions bubbled away in large earthenware pots. It wasn’t long before the villagers suspected the old crone of witchcraft and Satanism. Their fears were finally confirmed when

Halloween Haunts #2: The Very Essence Of Evil That Lurks in Alabama

28 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Creepy places, Haunted houses, Haunted locations, October 2016

If you’re ever travelling through Alabama during your vacation time… you may find yourself face-to-face with the very essence of evil. A place called Sloss Furnaces. This dark, and grisly place, from 1882 to 1971, transformed coal and ore from surrounding acres into the hard steel that would pave the way for industy. From skyscrapers in New York to cars being built in Detroit, America came to rely on Sloss Furnaces for providing materials needed to produce thousands of products.  But this success came at a dangerously high price… In the early 1900’s, James “Slag” Wormwood, was foreman of the “Graveyard Shift”, the period between sunset and sunrise, where a crew of nearly one hundred and fifty workers toiled to keep the furnace fed. During the summer months, temperatures throughout

Strange Noises and Black Shadowy Apparitions Plague Our House!

20 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

Since the beginning of last year, my wife and I have been hearing strange noises in our house. They normally start late at night. Some of the noises are just creaks and bangs, but recently we have been hearing children playing downstairs while we are upstairs. These children are very, very audible and are usually screaming, crying and calling for their parents. We have been suffering through it, but about five months ago our son said that he saw a woman come into his room, sit on his bed, and sing to him. He said that she had black hair, black eyes, and a pale face. My wife and I are unsure of what to do. A few weeks ago we were spending time together in the living room when

Is My House Evil?

13 October 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

This past summer, my husband and I were attending a baby shower for our new baby to be. We were staying at my parents’ house. There are three entities that reside in my parent’s house. This incident took place with an older male spirit who is rarely seen, but often felt. The feeling you get from him is one of fear. Even as a child I remember being afraid of this spirit. We were sleeping in the spare room that is in my parent’s basement and I could feel him staring at us from the corner of the room while we were sleeping. I had to lay facing towards the wall because I could not turn my back on him; We got little sleep while we were there. I would

The Shadow At The Bottom of my Bed

11 October 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

In 1998, I was 14 and was spending the summer with a friend and her family in Idaho. At first, everything was perfect and I was very happy sleeping alone in my own room on the third floor. Five nights into my stay though, I started to wake up every night. Standing in front of me, at the foot of my bed, stood a man looking down at me. I couldn’t really see anything. All I saw was a bright white outline and it looked like he had a hat on his head. He would just stand there and stare at me. I would just turn around and stare at the wall and hope he would disappear. I never turned around to see if he had gone away. Eventually I

A Paranormal Intruder Drives A Family From Their Home

07 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Your Stories

One night, when I was twelve-years old, I had left my bedroom window open all night as our house didn’t have any kind of air conditioning and it was very warm. At around two in the morning, I heard a very loud husky voice speak to me. I looked out of the window, but saw absolutely nobody out there. I remember thinking that I was just dreaming. The next day, I woke up very late in the afternoon and in the hospital. My parents said that they had found me unconscious outside on the lawn at 4am in the morning after hearing a loud bang. The bang they’d heard was me jumping off the shed. The funny thing is, is that there is no way to get on the roof
